Information regarding selection of courses
With us all our students are registered at certain
programme courses each semester so depending on which year of
studies you are in we will advise you to apply to the courses
offered the semester of studies you are in at the time of your
exchange period with us. These courses are mandatory and it is
expected that you participate in all of them. By following and
passing the courses you will earn 30 ECTS credits. On top of that
you have the option to participate in a number of workshops offered
to all students. These will not give you any extra credits but
hopefully provide you with new skills plus you can always ask the
teacher or professor holdig the workshop to certify that you have
participated in his/her workshop. On top of the 30 credits you take
with us you have the possibility to apply for and be accepted to
another 15 credits of courses offered by some other department
within Umeå University.
Based on your previous education (which term of studies you are
in) and your artistic experience (the work you send in to us) we
want you to take either the courses offered in year 2 within our
bachelor programme or in year 1 within our master programme.
Step 2. Work samples, motivation letter and CV
In addition to applying according to the
instructions sent to you and your selection of courses, you have to
send your digital portfolio to us. This application should include
approximtely 5 work samples, a motivation letter and your CV.
Send your application to
firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than
October 15 for the spring semester 2020. Send your
work samples through WeTransfer or Dropbox if the files are
After the deadline our professors will go through the incoming
applications and decide who they want to offer a place. Our
professors base their decision on the artistic quality of the
portfolio and on the student's qualification and motivation.
Aditionally, we have to adjust to the total number of students at
the school as we only have a certain number of studio places to
offer our students.
